LOCATION - Location!! The River house is a prime spot on Bow St. You can sit on the porch overlooking the Tugboats and River and Bridges. The inner seating is fine as well. I love this spot for lunch. The menu has some real keepers on it. Lots of yummy sandwiches, a half sandwich and soup offering, burgers and panini's as well. Portions are very generous. Gotta say, I can never resist the chowder here and neither should you. It is outstanding. The Sunday brunch has all the fixings and with an excellent bartender, the bloody marys or signature cocktails are worthy of a try.

The River House has a seperate gluten free menu that includes all fried foods, their famous chowder, delicious buns and so much more! They only put gluten free items in their fryer so no chance of cross contamination there! I ate a lobster roll and homemade chips and it was amazing!!

We ate here on a really cold Friday night. I don’t know if it was that it was a Friday night, the intrinsic feeling of the place, or people were just happy to be out of the wind, but everyone who came down the stairs to the tavern were laughing. The mood was perfect. And Perry our server was superior. Pleasant, funny, efficient, low key,... Ask for Perry’s table. And now the food. I had the Turkey panini which was hot, huge and delicious. The cowboy burger and Bow Street burgers were also perfectly done. The beer and wine list is big enough to have great choices. This was the perfect spot for a Friday night.

We stop at the River House every time we visit Portsmouth. If you enjoy great seafood and a variety of equally tasty offerings that are skillfully prepared and tastefully served this is the place to visit. Our favorite seats are on the large outside "porch" just beyond the bar. Open in the warm months and heated and enclosed with heavy plastic material that allows you to look out at the tug boats and Portsmouth Harbor.
